Ok, it’s for an excellent charity and the music is really excellent overall (let’s pass over Aerosmith/Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars dreadful reggae version of Give Peace A Chance). Yoko Ono gave permission for Amnesty to put together this double CD of rather decent acts doing versions of John Lennon’s post-Beatle stuff.
I listened to it in my housemate’s car on the 2 hour drive back from the parents place yesterday. Highlights: Jackson Browne doing ‘Oh My Love’, The Raveonettes’ ‘One Day At A Time’, a-ha’s ‘#9 Dream’ and Regina Spektor’s sublime take on ‘Real Love’.
A gripe though. I can’t import the friggin’ thing to iTunes. I can get a few tracks on each cd and then the bloody thing crashes my Mac. Grrrr. I smell copy-protection.
Before I go all guns blazing to Warners, has anyone else had the same problem?
